Where is Celine Dion? (Answer: CELINE DION IS AMAZING.)

633 posts in this topic

I really would be surprised if Mariah was more successful than Celine in the 90s, if she did it must be very close.. Piranha never had that sort of reach worldwide, and Sealion had 2 albums that sold over 30 million. She definitely hated her back then. :rotfl:

+ another two albums (falling into you and the first GH ) sold more than 20 millions + her french albums...

She has a lot of hits... but wherever she is I hope she won't be coming back anytime soon

she was the ultimate queen of dreary ballads in the 90s

She already had the twins, no?

"Think Twice" was huge in the UK; in the USA, it only mustered a No. 95 peak on the Hot 100- from that album, it was "The Power of Love," followed by "Misled" (No. 23 peak) and then both "Think Twice" and "Only One Road" peaked in the 90s.

And in the 90s, Ms. Dion was not a middle-aged woman. She was on the verge of 30 when "My Heart Will Go On" hit. :lol:

well, the album sold millions...maybe they were huge in the adult contemporary chart, i don´t know...I just love that mariah wasn´t the number 1, not because I hate her, she has some good songs and her first albums were good, just because she´s so full of herself, and so impressed by her numbers...

and who knows, maybe 29 years old is becoming middle aged already!!!!! the show bussiness is so crazy that it may happen!

I have determined that Celine's thunderous AC ballads are more timeless than Mariah's twee RnB pop. FAKT

I totally agree

I saw that she added "Where Does My Heart Beat Now" to the latest Vegas show (though there's debate about whether it's mimed). She had not included that in live shows since 1993-1994, I believe (she did part of it on Oprah in 1997 or so).

Well she could have easily added it and do a lipsynch like she did with The Power Of Love :wow:

I like and respect how Celine has basically stayed the same all these years, yet has evolved enough to still have a career. And out of the unholy trinity of divas (Mariah, Whitney, and Celine), she is the only one who's current voice most resembles her voice at it's peak. Whitney's is the worst and Mariah seems to fall somewhere in the middle.

I'd check out a new album if she made one. I've always enjoyed big voices. ;)

I think Celine is likely happier now than when she was a top diva getting #1 hits. Right now she's making a lot of money in Vegas, yet is still able to live a semi-normal life in her several mansions, one which includes on odd water park. She seems like a family oriented person that likely enjoys doing big family parties, in private away from the paparazzi. I don't think she would enjoy being Madonna. She's likely happy where she's current at.

well, she makes a lot of money, and although she doesn´t sell as she used to, she has a hit every once in a while, she has a family...´but I don´t think she´s not ambitious.I mean, she´s been releasing music since the 80s, she has millions of albums...

i remember when Taking Chances only managed to sell 1.1M copies in the US and 3.5M worldwide, lambs called her "FLOPline Dion." then one year later, when E=MC2 only managed to sell 2M copies WORLDWIDE, Celine's fans laughed their asses off and started calling Mariah "over." :lol:

not surprised she's big in almost every corner of the world. she's very likeable and she has that very endearing personality. bet she doesn't even know how many copies of albums she had sold. :angel:

Wherever Celine is, I hope she's farrrrr farrrr away from a music studio. I cannot stand her sappy music.

Nice lady though and her Vegas shows look Spectacular, but her music is terrible.

Being bilingual is a huge advantage, but people here don't acknowledged that. They simply go by whatever the latest charts show, which currently means that Gaga, Rhianna & Britney rule the world. They also only care about the English charts and whoever is #1 on the US hot 100.
